Customer service acted as though they could care less about the fact that they were taking 3 days pay from me. I spoke to two different reps with the same attitude. Why on earth would anyone want to stay with this company ... Be VERY careful ... vonage does the same thing
I have been a customer for a year now. The digital phone adapter I got was defective - having a normal phone conversation impossible. It took tech support awhile to figure out that their digital adapter was the problem. They were very helpful I must say and offer to replace the equipment. I have to use my cell phone to complete my calls because my caller constantly experiencing problems hearing me. It was annoyingly coming in and out. It was very frustrating having to repeat yourself all the times. What could be a 5 minutes conversation ending up being a 30 minutes call because of constantly repeating yourself. This was right from the start. I thought the issue would go away but it did not. All this was mentioned in my notes with tech support that I have been having the issue for the whole year. I barely use the service. The new adapter seems to be okay so far. I asked tech support if there is anything they can do like a courtesy credit for their faulty service. He advised me to speak to customer service. The lady bluntly told me that the fact that I had service - faulty or not they will be no credit. She also said tech support is aware of the issue ( from their note on the system) let them give me a credit. Their definition of service is once the phone make a connection that service. It does not matter if their adapter is faulty and the quality is so bad that you have to you your cell phone instead. Two thumbs down ACN!
System was down again.( I took their Customer service rep (his name is Ray) 20 minutes on the phone to admit there is a major outage. Ray had no idea how long it will take to fix. When asked to talk to a supervisor he told me nobody is available I'm going to look for a different company. Every time they need to adjust their server and they don't test - they ask me to have friends that use different provider to test
If all you want are headaches, then this company will deliver that. VOIPO does not care about customer service. The customer service agents are rude and will lie to you, just to get you off the phone. They will always state that the problem is yours and then fix the problem later on, doing the work on their end. I have read that Timothy Dick (the owner), cares about the customers, but this is not reflected at all in the attitude of the customer service department. Not so surprisingly, the price that they advertise is not the price that you will pay. The absolute minimum with a 2 year contract, paying the whole amount in advance, is $7.71/ month. They also do not have the same high rating among they reviews as the other companies which actually charge less per month. It also appears that being honest with customers is not very important. If you do get their service and need to transfer to another company, be aware of the problems and difficulty your will have. VOIPO has kept customer phone numbers and forced the customer to pay for another month before they were willing to transfer the number. The claim it is part of their fine print.
